Intel Debuts with an 'Ever Efficient' Motherboard DX79SR

Intel has officially introduced its new motherboard codenamed DX79SR. According to the company's developers, this board is the most functional one among all models ever released by Intel. One won't find it difficult to guess that the release of DX79SR is devoted to the announcement of a flagship processor Intel Core i7-3970X EE which breaks all records in terms of power-efficiency: its TDP level is estimated at 150W.



Motherboard Intel DX79SR is developed in ATX form-factor. It is compatible with LGA2011 socket and operates under Intel X79 Express chipset. The manufacturer alloted eight 240-contact slots for SDRAM memory of DDR3-2400+ type; the overall capacity of system memory might achieve 64 GB. Intel HD Audio is represented by 10-channel subsystem (7.1+2 channels with independent current transfer) with five analog outputs and optical S/PDIF output.


Motherboard extension facilities include three slots for PCI-e 3.0 x16 expansion cards, a couple of PCI-e x1 slots, and a …

The Swiftech Apogee SKF-TR4 Water Unit Has an Enlarged Cooling Engine for Better Performance

The Swiftech company presented a new revolutionary water unit of the Apogee SKF series. It’s called Apogee SKF-TR4 and is designed for AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors.



The specialty features an innovative cooling engine (its surface area is enlarged by 30%) and customisation adjustments that are able to satisfy all users’ needs. This water unit is produced out of copper. In the place of base-processor contact the water block’s inner surface is covered with pinholes, extending the heat exchange space. Besides, in-and-out openings are located in front of active crystals in the multichip Threadripper module.


The waterblock mountings fit only system boards with the TR4 (SP3r2) CPU connectors. The novelty supports the Addressable RGB Iris tech and is provided with the Swiftech Iris-Eco controller. Two strips of RGB LEDs allow Apogee SKF comply with any colour scheme.


Apogee SKF-TR4 will hit the market at the end of October 2017. It will cost approximately $108.

Hard disk controllers, list of vendors

Here you can find a list of Hard disk controllers vendors and download necessary drivers straight away. With a view to find a required driver out of 1452677 items in our database inventory, select an appropriate vendor of Hard disk controllers from the list of 45 available in this section.

DevID : : Hard disk controllers

The hard drive controller is a complex device, a minicomputer with its own processor, a control chip, RAM and ROM, TV recording and reading data, the interface module and the positioning system. It usually presents one or two microchips (in physical form), soldered on the Board, and implementation converting operations in the data flow.

Many modern drives are characterized by a variety of modes, including DMA2, ultra DMA and PIO. In order to take advantage of these modes, it is recommended that you download driver for hard disk controllers. Mode DMA (Direct Memory Access) is useful because it allows you to significantly offload the CPU of the PC during data exchange operations; wherein the controller is in direct connection with the computer interface. In contrast to DMAmode PIO uses the CPU when transferring data through the interface; however, the controller has direct access to RAM.

Sometimes the OS cannot recognize the hard disk controller, even when the installed drivers. The reason for this can be the following:

  • mechanical damages. When strikes or falls the elements of the seal can be deformed. Deformation most often exposed to the interface or contact at the site of attachment circuits. When a minor degree of damage, the device can be repaired, but the life of the elements is greatly reduced. It is also worth considering the possibility of factory defects of the individual elements;
  • electrical damage. The performance of PC hardware is largely dependent on the stability of the voltage petenera in the system. In case of excess, spikes or sharp cut-off voltage and electrostatic discharge, the fuses of the power supply circuit, power circuits or in the worst case, the controller CPU can burn out. Often the fuses are not repairable and require replacement;
  • outdated driver hard disk controllers. When you upgrade the hardware of the computer (or some components) of a previously installed program requires updates to install the relationship with the OS.
